HACIENDA SAN JOSE CHIKEH, IZAMAL

ID: TY-004561

This graceful historic hacienda is restored as a comfortable and intimate family home with complete privacy and in it’s own 130 hectare nature preserve of tall trees and thick forest, habitat of javelina, wild turkey, deer and is a bird-watcher’s paradise.  The property line is only 1 km east of Izamal, with a direct road which can easily be opened as the main entry if you plan to develop as a boutique hotel - the location is perfect.

The main house dates from1707 when it was a cattle and honey encomienda; in the mid-1800s the “fabrica” was added and it became an important henequen hacienda and for the last 60 years has been allowed to grow over in forest.  Many native fruit trees and citrus are planted around the house and the old system of “canos” to carry water for irrigation is substantially intact, fed from the wells and the two norias.  The cenote is hard to visit - one has to descend through the mouth to a cave system which one follows 100 meters to a clear pool of water with fish and evidence of early Maya use. 

There are remains of a Maya ceremonial center on the property, part of the great civilization of pre-colonial Izamal; these have been catalogued by INAH and while you cannot practice amateur archaeology, they are an important part of the history of the area and present no obstacle to the ownership and use of the land.
